I bought this game to take the edge off during finals week. I love the Red Alert series and this was a very fun find. The graphics are still pretty decent a few years on, music and sound is great and gameplay is superb. There are three parts:

1) Single-Player Campaign

You have your standard 4-mission campaign for each of the 3 armies. A bonus campaign in which you control only Yuriko (the Japanese commando version of Tanya) is also short but substantially fun and fresh.

2) Skirmish Mode

Just your basic custom-map, custom-army, custom-computer-players battlefield

3) Commander's Challenge

THIS IS IT!!! In this mode, you are taken through 50 extremely UNIQUE and challenging Skirmish battles with your army of choice, trying to beat first the scenario and unlock new units, and then improve on your time. If you are competitive, you will spend close to 50 hours beating it. If you love RTS and cannot get bored, you will spend almost 100 hours beating all the Challenges in record time. Very fun.

Pros - excellent single player options, long life, good price
Cons - no multiplayer, low replay value once you beat it

First, I love this series. I love these kind of games. However, someone at EA must have been beaten as a child and wanted the rest of us to suffer.

Reasons why this game needs 6 months more in development.
1. The computer is NOT effected by the FOW, (fog of war). It seems like it plays at trying to make you believe it can't see you, but it can. (i.e. hide something out in a corner of the map, away from everything. Without a scout or any hint of something "finding" you. The computer will head right to you.
2. This game should have been called Exploit Rampage, or Super Bum Rush.... There was obviously hundreds of hours put into thinking up all the different vehicles and characters...Buuuuut the only way to win many of the battles is to use exploits. Forget studying all the details about what shoots how far, and balancing your air and cav to achieve the right force balance. Screw it, just hover cheap ERS air units over your targets and let them shoot them down and they will become the most powerful bombs in the game. Or just bum rush you opponent with a Dojo and flood the computers base with tank busters. Nice to know all the work on those beautiful stats and details went to waste.
3. BUGS...enormous numbers of console locking bugs. On multiple occasions I have been ready to deal the killing blow, but guess what. I can't... why?... don't know. push the button and NOTHING....
4. the computers AI is smart... your troops are not. 9 times out of 10 you send a troop to do something and it will take the longest route or the route that will get it killed. I've seen engineers circle an oil well TWICE before it finally tried to capture it. Your troops will always, ALWAYS shoot at the least important target.

One of the things that I enjoy about playing the Red Alert games is building a massive force that I can use to destroy my enemies. To me, that is the best feature of any RTS game, especially the Red Alert franchise. RA3 Uprising from my perspective was a huge disappointment. First there really isn't much of a storyline. It seems like the RA 3 creators decided to put together a number of concepts that they couldn't use in RA 3 with Uprising.

In addition, there are way too many covert ops missions. I don't mind one or two missions where I have a few units and spies and I need to accomplish an objective, but to make an entire mission out this is just beyond frustrating. I completed the first 3 Soviet Missions and the first 3 Allies Missions then I just decided I've had enough covert ops missions. I easily got tired of the game because it wasn't giving me what I wanted, which is more opportunities to build a massive force to destroy.

I hate to say it but I can't recommend this game even for the die hard RA fan. It's just not as fun as the previous RA games.

I got this game off of the humble bundle a few months back, and as a result, I'm doing my first Amazon review.

This game is a train wreck. I got it for 20 bucks, bundled with like 8 other EA games, and I still spent too much on it.

I'm a big fan of the command and conquer series of games, RTS in general really, and this might be the worst RTS I've ever played. The hammy FMVs are probably the worst the series has ever seen, but still pretty amusing, if you can ignore Chesty McFanservice's latex military uniform. Balance is completely out the window between units, pretty well completely negating the "you'll need to use a lot of different kinds of units to succeed" warning the tutorial specifically points out. And while the campaigns are understandably short (it is a 20 dollar game, after all), they're where the game really shows its lack of planning.

Now, the game has no multiplayer. I guess that's to be expected, it's just a standalone expansion. You'd expect that to mean that the single player game is top notch, since it's basically all the game has going for it. You'd be mistaken. The game balance goes from laptop-throwing, "I wish I had a disk to break" hard, to trivially easy. Often times, on the same level. The first level, for instance, has you running around with a small horde of infantry soldiers. Standard RTS fare, only this time you're facing tanks with force fields that absorb all of your attacks while making themselves harder to kill. And you only get 6 tank-busters for a good portion of the map, if you don't count molotov cocktails (and you shouldn't. They suck).
